For those who may not know, it's short for Constitutional Convention. This is something new to me and we will be voting on the issue tomorrow. This vote determine whether to hold the convention to revise Illinois' constitution.

So, how are you going to vote and why?

I'm voting yes, but not enthusiastically. I am hopeful that a con con will help rid Illinois of its idiotic property tax laws. However, i'm more inclined to think that it will just be a big waste of time.

It is ok. I only made it for the Chicago forum so you were totally entitled to make one for Illinois. You doing so is not a duplicate thread at all. If someone wanted to make one for the Chicago burbs that would be ok too. I did not want to make one for the burbs and Illinois-I do not want to be labeled a spamer!

By the way, it appears Yes is winning 2 to 1 right now...
